jerohen (1962) - Bussum, - DEC 15, 2012
Bottled (66 cL) from Biernavigatie.nl. Bottle date August 2012, bottle nr. 8937. Label is from regular Embrasse, but additional sticker and card says Ardbeg Islay whisky-barrel. In contrast to current Ratebeer database it states 10% ABV. Very dark brown colored, medium lasting brown head, beautiful. Very powerful nose, Islay whisky, peat, iodine, smoke, medicinal even, is there actually beer in here? Smoked flavor, earthy, then lots of malts, together with iodine. Lasting finish, astringent, very earthy, bitter and liquorice. Extremely full-flavored, almost pure Islay whisky, which i like. But then again, that may also be the downside of this beer: why not just take an Ardbeg whisky if you’re in the mood for something like this? Still, i like it a lot. But one piece of advice: share your bottle, a bottle this size is too much to finish yourself.
